    If you have Photoshop, it should come with ImageReady which you can use. Otherwise, there are quite a few other GIF animation software which I can't really remember offhand...

    You can try Paintshop Pro 9, there is an GIF animation program which is not too bad.

    hi all,
    i tried using ImageReady to do the gif. but the effect turned out weird..
    can anyone just kindly guide me through the simple steps to make a animated gif?

    basically, this is what i did through some fiddling around and trial n error.

    1) copy 3 different images onto 3 layers
    2) in the animation palette, i chose "make frames from layers"
    3) then "optimize animation"
    4) then save as "gif"

    but it turns out like this instead:



    where did i go wrong? or what steps did i miss out?

    thanks very much for the help!

    if you're on PC, you can try "Microsoft Gif Animator". it's free and simple to use... now, how often can you say that about Microsoft?

    just load in (non-animated) gif files, sort, set intervals, and presto!!

    i dl it and it works!
    but the picture quality took a compromise..
    very pixelated.. alot of compression i suppose..

    any other s/w minimizes that?
